{alltv} After Injury, Jordin Sparks Misses Sunday and Monday Shows of 'In the Heights'


Jordin Sparks, the "American Idol" finalist who recently made her Broadway debut as Nina in In the Heights, injured her hip at the evening performance Aug. 28 at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.

The injury occurred in Act One, a spokesman said. Sparks finished the Saturday night show but missed both shows Sunday, Aug. 29. Understudy Courtney Reed went on. Playbill.com has learned that on a doctor's suggestion, Sparks will also sit out the Aug. 30 performance.


Sparks, the 2007 winner of TV's "American Idol," stepped into another American success story on Aug. 19 when she joined the Broadway cast of In the Heights, the Tony Award winner about the Latino neighborhood of Manhattan's Washington Heights.

Sparks is making her Broadway debut in the role of college student Nina Rosario, who returns home from Stanford University for the summer — with a secret that shakes the foundation of her family's American dream. Friends, family and a new love rally around her in the musical portrait of a changing neighborhood where multiple musical styles echo on the streets, spill from the windows and brew in the minds of its eclectic Latino characters.

Sparks will play a limited 12-week engagement through Nov. 14.

Creator and Tony-winning songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda told Playbill.com, "Jordin is an undeniable talent and an incredibly versatile performer. When she came in to audition for the creative team, I knew she'd be able to sing the role of Nina (and does she ever). I was not prepared for how winning and honest an actress she'd be. I can't wait to see her tear it up with the rest of this amazing company."
